And as the people are dispossessed—no longer able to live on the land—they’re forced into cities and become dependent on jobs. This is how the working class is created and continuously resupplied. It also creates the consumer: without land, we have to pay for food, shelter, and all our other needs. The next part is production. One of the defining features of capitalist production is the exploitation of labor. Exploitation has a precise meaning in economics, which isn’t simply using someone for material gain.
We need to break through this superstructure to choke off the flow of capital. The conversion of nature into commodities is intertwined with the exploitation of human labor; one can’t happen without the other. Similarly, the fight to defend the land and traditional land-based ways of life is also connected to the fight for an end to exploitation, a classless society. One can’t be won without the other. When we understand this, liberating ourselves and saving the planet become the same act. Capitalists have been very good at dividing the interests of the workers from the environment.
The only ideas allowed to participate in the market are pro-system; any others are starved of support. The dominant culture tells us how to think and behave through the stories and myths of mainstream media, entertainment, and religion. It indoctrinates us in its schools. Its traditions train us in habits of individualism, competition, and subservience to authority. Its ideologies reinforce structural oppression such as misogyny, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, and nationalism. The nuclear family is a self-policing social unit enforcing the domination of children and women.
